Journalist Anthony Howard was one of the many eminent people who worshipped at St Mary Abbots in Kensington.
His funeral is at the church this Wednesday 5 January at 12 noon. He was seen in the pews on Sundays until very recently.
His body is going back not just to his own church but to where it all began. When Anthony was born in 1934 his father was a curate at St Mary Abbots.
